Hoosier fans set new record for short memories

Tuesday, March 18, 2014 12:01 am
Rumors swirled last week that Indiana University boosters want to buy out men's basketball coach Tom Crean's contract and replace him with New York Knicks coach Mike Woodson. Woodson, an IU alum, has never coached in college. Clearly, those boosters are nostalgic for the good old days of starting over from scratch.

The heat on Crean makes a lot of sense when you break it down. After all, he hasn't had the Hoosiers ranked No.1 in the country or in the Sweet 16 since way back in 2013.Former Denver Broncos player John Moffitt was arrested on charges of possession of cocaine, ecstasy pills and marijuana. He retired from the NFL in November, saying he was tired of risking his health. However, it should be noted his alternative health plan is still considered fairly unorthodox.The New England Patriots signed free agent cornerback Darrelle Revis to a two-year deal, with the first year worth $12 million. Patriots coach Bill Belichick wanted to improve his defense and make sure there was at least one big-name free agent who didn't sign with the Denver Broncos.The New York Knicks were expected to introduce Phil Jackson as their new team president today. Guess that dispels the notion that Jackson is so good he needs no introduction. Jackson's goal with the Knicks will be fairly simple: Build a team that can actually win something now and Zen.Defensive end Julius Peppers signed a three-year deal to join the Green Bay Packers after he was released by the Chicago Bears. This begs the question: If he comes up with big games vs. the Bears, will Peppers be rubbing salt in their wounds?
